Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

One of the great resources of Kunde Family Estate is our old-vine Shaw Vineyard, located in the hills in the middle of the Estate. We use this fruit not only for our Reserve bottling but there's always plenty left over to enhance this Sonoma Valley Estate wine as well. The 2007 Kunde Zinfandel is made up of nearly 40% old-vine vineyard grapes, supplemented by our other wonderful estate Zinfandel vineyards. Kunde's red volcanic soil makes for a boysenberry-scented, elegant wine that is still plenty bold and ripe to remind you that this is definitely Zinfandel, after all! That silky texture and the ripe chocolate truffle flavors will fold right in to a French dip or barbequed beef sandwich.

Style: Big & Bold
Pair with: Pork > Sausage, Pasta > Tomato-base
Outstanding value at $12.99. Paired with a red wine salami and gruyere cheese as a starter and fusilli pasta topped with a red wine tomato sauce with spice pork sausage and beef as a main. The red wine salami and cheese really complimented this wine well and vice versa. The pasta couldn't have worked better with this wine. Robust deep, dark berries with pepper and spice on the nose. Very welcoming after opening up a bit. Complexity, character, and a brashness that I love about Zinfandel yet still under control and not chaotic in the finish that can accompany some Zins that just want to be bold for the sake of being bold. Another Kunde Estate Zin and another experience I'm happy to relive while writing this review. This bottle, when allowing to open up and paired correctly, will not disappoint and so far neither have any of the Kunde bottles I've bought.

Very good wine. I'm not a huge fan of Zinfandel but when we opened this wine the aroma was amazing. Smelled like strawberry jam and tastes of berry.

Twice as large as Napa in size, Sonoma County only makes about a half the amount of wine as her northeasterly neighbor. But Sonoma, with her size, is able to vouch for more diversity within her borders, including sub-AVAs that are climatically varied. The atmosphere of Sonoma is decidedly laid back and down home country style. But in wines, they are keeping up with the...
